Hosted by Bookmarks bookshop, author Kieran Allen will introduce a discussion celebrating the centenary of the Easter Rising for Irish freedom. His new book published by Pluto, 1916, looks at the context of the Rising in the imperialist conflicts of the time. It also follows the thread of Ireland's complex revolutionary tradition - uneasily combining republicanism and socialism - in the century since.
Doors open at 6.30pm for browsing the extensive Bookmarks book stall and the meeting will begin at 7pm. Refreshments available on the night.
